The Shanishta was a Naga of the Asp who awoke from the first Great Sleep in the 12th century.

The Shanishta was a beautiful Naga who attracted the Tashar with his dance, like cloud dancing on the wind. They were mated quickly, then they went on the first Great Sleep. [1]

First Awakening Edit

The Tashar and the Shanishta woke up in Rokugan. First they fought humans, who were frightened by the beast, then they fought the Shadowlands alongside the Crab Clan. The madness of Hitomi made the Naga fought again humans, and again they turned against the Foul, in the War Against Shadow. During the Battle of Oblivion's Gate the couple fought together for the last time. Foul beasts wounded her deep and the Shanishta could not walk again. They entered in the second Great Sleep. [2]
